levels of instruments on a drumrack track

Hi there,

I'm working on a liveset containing one drumrack track that i can drag into another liveset easily. Now i've eq'd and panned all sounds  but i'm wondering what the db levels of the individual samples should be for best result. Also consider i want some headroom on the group's track so i can add some light compression with short attack and release to glue it all together without distortion. I also will add a limiter for -0.30 db. My style is techno, the samples are 808-ish...

    Start with the kick at -10db and just get everything to sound right against that
